Estate Planning Hawthorn

Estate and succession planning refers to plans that are strategically designed and put in place for situations such as retirement, loss of mentality or physical capacity and death.
An estate and succession plan is something that every Australian should have in place, regardless of age, health, or wealth status.

An estate and succession plan has the goal of protecting the assets of an individual, ensuring that the wealth that has been accumulated over time will pass on to the desired individuals, and is controlled and managed in a way that facilitates this. A great estate and succession plan will have considered risks and make contingency plans to mitigate those risks to ensure that wealth and assets are adequately managed and protected. No matter what life throws at you, an estate and succession plan is there to back you and your family up, at a time where you may need it most.

What kind of things are included in an estate plan?

At Tony Kelly Lawyer & Estate Planners, we understand that an experienced and professional wills and estates lawyer is essential in terms of creating bespoke succession and estate planning strategies that ensure that the wealth which you have created is preserved for the intended recipients and that it doesn’t end up in the hands of unintended recipients.

What kind of things are included in an estate plan?

Gone are the days where life was simple and the asset which needed to be dealt with was the family home and a motor vehicle. These days many Australians have complex family and financial arrangements which need to be taken into consideration when creating an effective succession plan.

These include;
– Family Trusts
– Businesses and companies
– Insurances such as income protection and life insurance
– Superannuation entitlements.

Additionally, the typical Australian family has also developed and changed over time, with the average family no longer mum, dad and 2.5 kids, with blended families and same sex couples also now part of the planning equation. A simple Will on its own may simply not go far enough in terms of effective estate planning.
